Nonsurgical fat reduction offered at VIP Plastic Surgery in Las Vegas, NV is a great option for patients who are struggling with stubborn fat and cellulite, but do not wish to undergo the stress and risks of an invasive surgery like liposuction. Dr. Christopher Khorsandi, our board-certified plastic surgeon, offers two different systems that are both designed to safely and effectively eliminate fat cells in the abdomen, lower back, buttocks, and thigh areas for a slimmer, toned contour. The Liposonix and BodyFX technology uses concentrated bursts of either radio frequency or ultrasound energy to target fat and cellulite that are resistant to diet and exercise — all without the need for an extensive recovery period. After one or more quick sessions, patients have reported losing multiple inches and reducing their clothing size thanks to this body contouring technique.
The ideal candidates for nonsurgical fat reduction will have:
- Reached a healthy, stable weight
- Stubborn fat on their abdomen, flanks, lower back, thighs, or buttocks
- A desire for a noninvasive approach that tones the body
- Good skin elasticity and overall health
- Realistic expectations for their outcome
Types of Fat Reduction
VIP Plastic Surgery is proud to offer the two following options for nonsurgical fat reduction to our Las Vegas, NV patients:
The Liposonix system utilizes focused, high-intensity ultrasound energy to penetrate deeply beyond just the surface layer of the skin. This unique technology allows for greater depth to be reached when targeting and destroying the subcutaneous fat cells, as opposed to certain laser devices that are only able to affect the body's top layer. This treatment is ideal for large surface areas such as the abdomen and flanks. Many patients have reported after a single, one-hour session having lost one inch around their waist, which is typically equivalent to one pant size. Multiple sessions can be administered as well to maximize results. Noticeable results usually take around 8 – 12 weeks to appear.
This treatment combines both radio frequency energy and a negative energy massage (vacuum) to simultaneously heat the skin's deep tissues and suction the top layer for maximum fat cell destruction, cellulite reduction, and skin tightening. BodyFX is designed to treat the abdomen, flanks, buttocks, thighs, and any other area that may benefit. Typically, 6 – 12 treatments are recommended for achieving optimal results, though some improvement can be noticed after one session. Fat and cellulite reduction can be observed right away, but the skin tightening process will take a more gradual, slow approach, yielding peak results after around 6 – 12 months.
These treatments are not an alternative to weight loss and are used for body contouring purposes only.

"So I am updating my review and I'm still giving everyone a 5+ star rating! I did the fraxel on Monday and it's Sunday evening and yes I am still pink but the results are amazing! My hyper pigmentation and most of my texture is gone! I also received a chin implant with Dr K on Wednesday so I'm still swollen with that but I know I'm going to love the result of that as well! Again I need to give a shout put to Mel for being a beast with a laser! She is my go to when it comes to my aesthetic needs and also Dr K for giving me confidence with my profile. I just wish the swelling would go down faster! lol damn lack of patience. Well I now have a laundry list of other things I would like to tweak. And I know VIP is the place I can trust and know I'll get the best work done!"- V.B. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2017

"Update: added back two stars because Dr. Khorsandi and his team have impeccable customer service. They contacted me to see if I'd like to come in and see what can be done about the final result. I went to the appointment and Dr. Khorsandi advised me of what would need to be done to fix it (very easy fix by the sounds of it). Also I've learned that what happened with mine is an extremely rare occurrence. I was expecting to have to pay something for a revision but he is doing this for me at no charge! I was floored - and obviously ecstatic. To me customer service is very important - and even though my revision surgery isn't until July I had to re-add the 2 stars because of this treatment. That also confirmed my decision to use him again for a different surgery I had interest in. Other surgeons and businesses take note: THIS is what top notch customer service looks like! Thank you VIP Plastic surgery!"- S.T. / Yelp / Apr 25, 2019
During each procedure, patients will be able to lie down and relax. Neither fat reduction option should be painful or uncomfortable, though patients can expect to feel a heating sensation underneath their skin due to the intense energy being emitted from the handpiece. These are short, outpatient treatments that will last around one hour depending on which area is being treated. If recommended, we will schedule additional sessions during the appointment.
Generally, anesthesia and numbing agents are not needed as these procedures should be comfortable. Once completed, patients can return home to their normal activities with no downtime. There may be some redness or slight bruising in the area after treatment, but these side effects should subside very quickly. Patients can expect their results to be long term, though a healthy diet and regular exercise are required to maintain fat loss and prevent weight gain from disrupting their outcome.
